Who We Are


Coastal & Marine Resource Development (COMRED) was established in 2006 as a non-profit organisation, with the mission to nurture practical solutions to problems facing coastal and marine environments and communities for sustainable development. We work with a host of partners and associates and have a strong focus on training students and interns as future practitioners.


From our headquarters in Mombasa, we work along Kenya’s Coast and beyond Kenyan borders into the Western Indian Ocean region. 


Our activities broadly address conservation and research of coastal and marine resources; sustainable urban development; capacity building, particularly of communities; and assistance to communities in the design and implementation of projects, as well as mentorship and monitoring.


Our Vision

A flourishing coastal and marine environment holistically benefiting coastal inhabitants.


Our Goals

To promote sustainable use of coastal and marine resources through stakeholder engagement, enterprise development, capacity building, management-oriented research and fostering mutual partnerships.
